Description

The complete set of 15 cards is presented, along with an original paper album produced by the manufacturer to house the items. These lavishly colored paper cards comprising this scarce, West Coast regional issue feature beautifully detailed illustrations of man-made phenomena on one side, with descriptive text, and an explanation of the set's distribution and promotional information on the other. The 3-1/4" x 5" cards – with subject highlights that include Rockefeller Center, Boulder Dam, the Mt. Palomar Telescope and the Los Angeles Planetarium – are not secured within the album, and exhibit generally EX/MT to NM condition with a couple lesser. The intact, 4-3/4" x 6-1/2" album concedes spots of paper loss on the covers but displays nicely.
